designed for career success
IlumniPath is an online program for education professionals that provides 1-on-1 mentorship, training and advice to help you land your next job. On top of that, we're built around aligned incentives. You only pay if you succeed in getting hired and start work at a high-paying job first.
There is no upfront cost required to enroll in IlumniPath; we only get paid when you do. The program is based on an income share agreement (ISA).

The way it works is only after you get hired, you pay back 10% of one year's income as you earn it. As part of the agreement, you don't pay anything, even from your current job or income, until you get paid from your new job first.
On average, program participants see an overall 10%+ improvement in salary, interview scores, and success rate on applications which means the program pays for itself.
We've brought together the best mentors from top organizations, big and small.

What is an ISA?
An ISA is an income share agreement. We offer income share agreements as an alternative to upfront program payment in order to make IlumniPath accessible to all and align incentives.
For mission-driven institutions
Income share agreements are used by organizations from top universities like Purdue University to other mission-driven startups like Lambda School.
Sponsored by US Senators
Senate lawmakers have introduced legislation to spur the growth of income share agreements to align incentives and reduce debt.
IlumniPath makes it better
While other income shares may last longer, the IlumniPath income share is only for 6 months and has a 12 month placement guarantee.
When we diversify our organizations, we open up the room to new voices and organizations change for the better. Our Diversify scholarship helps make the IlumniPath program more inclusive to people from underrepresented groups who are looking to optimize their job search and find a great job. This scholarship is open to any individuals who self-identify as Black, Latinx, Pacific Islander, and Native American.
Finding a job where you can be your most true self is essential to doing your best work, but for so many LGBTQIA+ people, it is more difficult to find roles in companies that are supportive and inclusive. At IlumniPath, we will teach you how to search for jobs that are right for you and guide you through the process so that you end up somewhere that you love. This scholarship is open to any individuals who self-identify as members of the LGBTQIA+ community, including genderqueer, non-binary, and transgender individuals.
How scholarships work
Scholarship recipients receive a reduction up to 33% on the standard income share agreement. While typically the IlumniPath income share agreement is paid out over half a year, as a part of this scholarship, recipients may instead pay their income share agreement over double that time throughout a full year at no penalty. We hope this more lenient timeline will allow for recipients to balance their income share with existing financial commitments.
Most common questions
You probably have some questions — we have answers!
When should I start IlumniPath?
If you are currently interviewing or are looking to switch positions within the next 3-4 months, then we can help. If you are looking to switch positions a few months from now, you should start your job search now to set yourself up with the best possible opportunities.
How much does it cost?
There is no upfront cost required to enroll in IlumniPath; we only get paid when you do. Only after you've been hired and start work, you pay back 10% of your first year's income over the course of six months.
IlumniPath participants usually see an increase in response rates, interview scores, and increases in salary through negotiation, so IlumniPath statistically pays for itself. If you aren't placed within 12 months, then you can waive your income share and pay nothing.
What is the time commitment?
At a minimum, we require a commitment of 10 hours a week dedicated to your job search until you get hired. This includes applications and interviews and the more time the better. On average, our fellows get placed within 6 months or less, but we will provide you with 1-on-1 support for as long as you need to get hired, as long as you remain committed.
